Like many other organziations around the world, Fundación El Caño has been working remotely until very recently. Due to the improvements in the sitation relatied to Covid-19 in the Republic of Panama, late September the Ministry of Health authorized organziations such as ours to return to work as long as we were in compliance with all biosecurity requirements. Team members who are located in the capital of Panama have been working in the laboratory in the City of Knoweldge since that time. Team members not in Panama City continue to work from home.

Dr. Julia Mayo has been working with one of the Fundación´s interns, Katherine Guerra Cheva from the Autonomous University of Chiriqui (UNACHI),  who is writing her thesis in the midst of the pandemic. Dr. Mayo who is one of Katherine's thesis advisors. They have been meeting virtually on a weekly basis as Katherinne progresses on her thesis.

The project to create a virtual tour of the El Caño Archaeological Park and Museum has been progressing. Fundación team members Carlos Mayo and Alexa Hancock went to El Caño to take the 2D and 360 degree photographs the students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute needed to create the tour. The International School of Panama generously lent Fundación El Caño their 360 degree camera to use for the project. Alexa Hancock has met virtually with the students on a weekly basis on the project to give feedback and ensure the students had all of the materials and information they needed to complete the project.

During the quarantine period, team members have been working on various publications. One of the publications is a two volume book detailing the first ten years Dr. Mayo and her team have been excavating in El Caño. The intent is to have the publication availble in ealry 2021. Recently, an article written by team members María Martín-Seijo , Joeri Kaal , Carlos Mayo Torné and Julia Mayo Torné, entitiled Wood in Pre-Columbian Funerary Rituals: A Case Study from El Caño (Panama, AD 880–1020), was published in the magazine ENVIRONMENTAL ARCHAEOLOGY (https://doi.org/10.1080/14614103.2020.18293019).
